Leveling With Republicans

By Burt Prelutsky

The Patriot Post
Editorial Commentary by Jim Campbell

You don’t seem to understand and sound like a RINO that won’t let go.  The likes of Snowe, Collins, Graham and Lugar, can’t be counted on. 

You say politics isn’t a sport, you are absolutely right.  Therefore we no longer need players on the team that can’t or won’t hit the ball with two outs and runners in scoring position.  This is war and as President Ronald Reagan said, there is but one outcome, “We win they lose.”

Your comparison with Boxer,  Schumer and Reid is odd to say the least are they planning on becoming Republicans?  I don’t think so.  No they don’t call them DINO’s which the are, they call them Blue Dog Democrats.  Any Difference?

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message.

Even though the next presidential election is still more than 500 days away, it’s never too soon to be prepared. After all, Obama hasn’t stopped campaigning since Election Day, 2008.

To begin with, and let me be very clear about his, no third party candidate, no matter how sincere or how well-funded — whether the party calls itself Libertarian, Constitution, Tea Party, Bull Moose or Whig — is ever going to win a national election. All a third party candidate will do is ensure that a liberal will be able to win with just 40-45% of the vote.

Also, anyone who is too pure in heart to vote for the Republican nominee, whoever it turns out to be, doesn’t then get to say, “Well, at least I had nothing to do with re-electing Barack Obama.” If you don’t vote for, as some folks like to say, the lesser of two evils, you will have a lot to do with electing the greater menace.

It is high time that Republicans grew up. The reality is that politics isn’t a game for kind hearts and gentle spirits; it’s a blood sport with everything from war to energy policy to tax rates riding on the outcome. Therefore, it verges on the insane when conservatives demean the less conservative as Republicans in Name Only (RINOS). Whether out of true conviction or mere geography, not everyone in America is going to be as conservative as you might like, but in the real world a RINO is better than a liberal. So, as off-putting as they can sometimes be, people like Scott Brown, Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe, are preferable to Harry Reid, Barbara Boxer and Charles Schumer. I, for one, will always prefer a senator who votes the way I like 50% of the time or even 10% of the time to someone who carries Obama’s water 24/7. And, to be fair, in liberal states such as Maine and Massachusetts, states that Obama won with over 54% of the vote in 2008, we’re lucky to have three senators willing to appear in public with a big, fat (R) target on their backs.

I also can’t help noticing that Democrats never make it a practice to insult any of their supporters by calling them DINOS.

George W. Bush was not my ideal, but I will forever be grateful that he kept Gore and Kerry out of the Oval Office and, moreover, appointed Roberts and Alito to the Supreme Court. Not too shabby for a RINO.

Next, in the coming months, I would hope that the various paranoiacs in our midst would refrain from predicting that martial law will be instituted and that Obama will see to it that the 2012 election never takes place. The first time I recall hearing this nonsense, Clinton was president. Then it began all over again, this time instigated by leftists when G.W. Bush was in office. Now, once again, it’s Republicans parroting this rubbish. I’m happy to report that when the 2008 election went off on schedule, I actually won $10 from a born sucker I happen to know. But I’d gladly forego the easy money if we could just get through the next election without having to put up with this childish flapdoodle.

Something else I’d like to avoid are those people who think themselves so smart and sophisticated when they insist that there’s no difference between Republicans and Democrats. Oh, really? Republicans want a balanced budget and a greatly reduced national deficit, the Democrats want to fund cowboy poetry festivals, trains to nowhere and, lest we forget, tunnels for turtles, with our tax dollars.

Moreover, while the Democrats pushed for the trillion dollar stimulus, Government Motors, ObamaCare, Cap and Trade, a moratorium on offshore drilling, card checks, and tax dollars for ACORN, the NEA and Planned Parenthood’s abortion mills, the greatly out-numbered Republicans kept pushing back. So just exactly how are they alike? They all put on their shoes one at a time?

Let us not forget that it was the Democrats who were vandalizing Madison, Wisconsin, and trashing the rule of law, on behalf of the goons and oafs in the public sector unions, while such Republican stalwarts as Scott Walker, John Kasich, Chris Christie and Mitch Daniels, were fighting for sanity and sound fiscal policies.

Do you think Republicans agree with Obama’s National Labor Relations Board that Boeing doesn’t have the right to build its new 787 Dreamliner factory in South Carolina, a right to work state, simply because the International Association of Machinists want it built in the state of Washington? Washington, is also the place where the machinists union has struck Boeing four times since 1989, at a cost in lost revenues of $1.8 billion.

Not too long ago, Barack Obama promised to double our exports. Democrats, who are always ready and eager to listen to fairy tales, ballyhooed the fatuous pronouncement and then begged to have Little Red Riding Hood read to them before they’d go to sleep.

Republicans, on the other hand, all knew better. They knew that the only exports Obama has any chance of doubling will be American jobs.

      WE must run a conservative against him and kick his RINO butt to the curb in the primary. Many many people in SC can’t stand him he is a whining little boy and refused to help Corey. He’s going down. Take it to the bank. Jim

  1. I don’t like voting for evil either but I will vote the lesser of two.

      Hi Mary there is another option running a conservative against him in the primary. His butt is getting kicked to the curb. In 2014 he is toast. Thanks for stopping bye, I’m no longer voting for the lesser of two evils, that’s crap. Get somebody to vote for it’s not that difficult. J.C.

    The old saying “We must hang together or we will hang separatly” is true. Even a RINO is better than a democrat. The only time I would vote against a RINO is if in the primary there is a better Republican alternative. Lets fill the legislature with Republicans, RINO’s and all and make it veto proof if, God forbid, Obummer wins in 2012.

      You neglect my friend a primary run by a true conservative to kick his but to the curb. It’s going to happen he is toast. Thanks for your comments. They are appreciated.

  3. Bert is clueless. We are in the morass that we are in BECAUSE of middle of the roaders…This is the lamest argument made about RINOs
    …we need to stand FOR something and not in the middle of the road, checking which way the wind is blowing…hoping against all hope that someway somehow we’re gonna get a few crumbs tossed our way.
    So, no phrase it any which you can, I will NOT place ‘social issues’ on the back burners. No. A 50% of the vote with me unacceptable. We have settled for too little for too long. Send RINOs home. Send career politicians home. Send freshmen who said one thing to get elected and then shifted fears once they got in, home. No more settling…None. America’s demise is not what true conservatives want. DINOs? DINOs? Of course they don’t call them DINOs…they are all pretty much in lockstep,
    stay in power, damn the people sheeple progressives. Bert is a useless idiot.

  4. In my opinion the Rino’s he named are no different at all than a Democrat. Scott Brown, once he got support from the Tea Party and won the election, immediately blocked all Tea Party from his FB page. He has voted with Obama all the way down the line. I wouldn’t vote for him if my life depended on it. I would go searching for voters who needed a ride to the polls if I knew they were going to vote sanely. Conservative with a capital C.
    Tea Party did get votes and if things keep on as they are, they will be the ones who determine which candidate gets on the Republican ticket. They will make darned certain there will not be any more Rinos either.

  5. By God, I swore in my youth that I would never knowingly vote for a Democrat, Communist or liar. When Nixon ran for a second term, I wrote in Jesus Christ. Pissed off the Election Board, my father was on it. That’s tough.
    When Bush ran for a second term, I wrote in Jesus Christ. When Shrub ran for a second term, I wrote in Alan Keyes. When McCain ran, I wrote in Alan Keyes. I have never broken that oath and I never will!!!

      There is always an option to run a conservative against Graham. If you don’t pull the pin for the Republican candidate even if it’s a blind chipmunk it would be better than the end of America which would result if Obama isn’t taken out! Ask Jesus for a pass from Jesus, he will give it to you. J.C.

  6. Jim Help me out here my friend. In order for Linseed to hit some balls doesn’t he have to grow some first? Very interesting day last Friday on the steps of the Dearborn City Hall with Pastor Terry Jones and Asst Pastor Wayne Sapp. Check out the Fox 2 news video on my fb page and see my comments when I was interviewed and where I was during this demonstration. Also check out the extended coverage from ABC Channel 7 Call to Action where they show when the unpeaceful people came across the street and were looking for a controntation to fight.

  7. I don’t know enough about this dude to shake a stick at, but if he’s a probelm, let’s get rid of him
